About the tour

With the excuse of highlighting a few ‘must see’ museums for when you next visit Florence (the list is by no means exhaustive and yes, they happen to be on either side of a straight line). This tour takes us on another walk of discovery to view some lesser known but no less important examples of architecture from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and even some Florentine Baroque.

Meet bruceflorence


With English and Italian heritage, Bruce received French schooling (in NY and Rome) before going to Italian University in Florence. His passion is history in general and Florentine history in particular. After years spent in international organizations, then in the world of auctions and art publishing, he returned to Florence where he thoroughly enjoys his profession as a tour guide, leading tours in English and French, sharing his insights about the city’s history and heritage. Since 2004 he is a member of the International Council of Museums.

The personal comments he made, his sarcastic opinions, his New York living experience turned me off. He definitely has a negative attitude, especially at the end of tour, saying giving tips is the money he makes, not from Heygo. I would not book another tour with him. Not friendly with others.

This was my first tour with Bruce, and first time in Florence. I was so wowed! It is so beautiful, with architecture of many varieties, all well preserved and maintained. Bruce's tour held my interest every moment, and I always take delight in guides with an understated sense of humor. He kept us on our toes, and joked about speaking New York English. He's so articulate and a pleasure to listen to. Going to start following Bruce from now on so I can take advantage of the opportunity to learn more about Florence from this delightful guide. Thank you, Bruce!
